About University of Calcutta:
- The Court of Directors of the East India Company sent a despatch in July, 1854 to the Governor-General of India in Council, suggesting the establishment of the Universities of Calcutta, Madras and Bombay.
- The idea of establishing a university in Calcutta was first mooted by the Council of Education Jobs in 1845 which suggested that in view of the advanced state of Education Jobs in Bengal, it was advisable to have a full-fledged university empowered to grant degrees to deserving students. Accordingly it drew up an elaborate scheme modelled on the University of London. Nothing came out of it, at least at that moment.
- In 1853, C.H. Camerson, the President of the Council of Education Jobs submitted a petition to the House of Lords. Herein he revived the idea of a university.
- A similar petition signed by Raja Radhakanta Deb and others on behalf of the members of the British India Association and others was also submitted in 1853.
- The Education Jobs Despatch of 19 July, 1854, popularly known as Woods Despatch, had really cleared the path for setting up of universities. Wood, as the President of the Board of Control of the East India Company, was indeed interested in Education Jobs, but he had a certain purpose. As he wrote to Lord Dalhousie, the Governor-General in India, although he accepted the idea of founding universities in India, he wanted these to be mainly supported by those who are anxious for it. He added that if they choose to educate themselves, well and good, but I am against providing our own future detractors, opponents and grumblers.
- It was decided that the University of London was to serve as a model. The proposed university was to consist of a Chancellor, a Vice-Chancellor and Fellows who would constitute a Senate. The Senate would have the authority to manage the funds of the university and to frame regulations for examinations. The functions of the university would be to hold examinations and confer degrees. In the despatch it was explicitly stated that the examination for degrees should not include any subjects connected with religious belief.
